I have 3 machines. One machine has less add-ons than the others. Most of them sync up, but not all. Maybe it's an OS issue?

Ubuntu 20 - sync working Win 10 Enterprise (Firefox Portable) - sync working Win 7 Home - missing add-ons

I have "add ons" checked in Settings/Sync on all 3 machines. Not sure what else to describe.

Obviously I want all machines to have the same add-ons, which is why I selected sync.

When using Firefox and searching with Google.com I will experience an issue where the Google links/websites won’t load. And if they have previously loaded and the issue begins none of the elements work. This issue is frustratingly intermittent. It will be fine for a few min and then break for a few min. I'd attach screenshots but there is no error - simply does nothing. I have done a bunch of troubleshooting and testing to get to the root of the issue.

  • Reload page
  • Restart Firefox
  • Cleared cache
  • Disabled Privacy/Security settings
  • Disabled Plugins
  • Updated Firefox
  • New Private Window
  • Tested another browser - Other browsers load google sites
  • Tested non google websites – Other websites are loading
  • Tested another network

I’ve noted that google.co.za seems to have a separate intermittency from google.com. However, I have tested and found both can be ‘broken’ at the same time. It also happens with Youtube.com. I am quite happy to continue troubleshooting, I just need some direction.

Hi,

 I have started having issues with links not working on webpages that I normally have no issues with.  For example,

https://www.walesonline.co.uk/. I can see news items and when I mouse-over links I can see the link detail at the bottom left. However, when I left click, nothing happens. I thought it may have been an issue with my home PC but I have the same issue with my work laptop, which is a corporate build. This has been happening for around a month and seems to be spreading to more websites. Can you advise what could be the cause please?

Three times now I have lost over 150 open tabs on Firefox and have spent hours trying to recover them but to no avail.

I have tried absolutely everything I have read in multiple support posts such as clicking on the 3 lines, trying to go into history, etc. The best I can do is go into my history to see thousands of website that I have been to in the past several months, but seemingly no way to restore only the 150 tabs that I had open.

Several of the posts refer to trying to find previous files with names in them such as "session..." and "json..." etc. but I cannot find any of these files on my hard drive.

MESSAGE TO FIREFOX DEVELOPERS: Please please please add an option to load a previous set of tabs that were open a week or two ago. Not an option to open the websites I was on, but the actual saved tabs. Very frustrating!!!!!! It's not reasonable to expect someone to go through 3,000 web pages in the history to find the 150 that I opened and left opened for a reason. A couple of hundred hours of my time in research down the drain.

Please help. I'm using the latest firefox browser on Windows 7. Thanks.

Started up my PC today, and my bookmarks are gone.

Saw the suggestion to restart, it didn't work.

Followed down the list and tried to load up back ups from the previous days, didn't work.

Tried several days, no help.

Now Firefox won't even let me create a new bookmark.

Is there a virus involved? Is microsoft attacking browers they don't make? What the heck?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

I'm having a strange problem with one particular website on my Mac that I hope someone here can solve.

I started having this problem on Wednesday morning of this week.

This is the particular website: https://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/

It loads incredibly slow for me on my iMac. I'm using the Mojave operating system if that helps.

I contacted their website moderator first and foremost to see if anyone else was having this problem, but he said there are NO other reports. He couldn't offer any help and was also stumped.

Before you offer suggestions, this is what I tried to no avail:

• Restarted Firefox in Safe Mode with ALL plug-ins and extensions turned off • Performed a Refresh on my Firefox browser from scratch • Emptied ALL cache, history and cookies • Unplugged and restarted my Mac, modem and router

Is it a case where I need to delete my Firefox browser and reinstall it?

Is there a corrupt pref file somewhere on my Mac that I got from this website, like Malware?

I know if you visit the website above, it will work perfectly for you, so I really hope someone can help with this strange problem. I'm stumped!!!

I have built a new PC. Both PC's are logged into the same Firefox Account.

The old PC has over 100 tabs open I need to have open on the new PC.

When I sync, it does not open the old PC tabs on the new PC.

I will need to use the old PC C drive eventually as the new PC D drive, but obviously cannot do so until the New PC has all the tabs open from the Old PC.

I cleared the browser console before attempting a sync - there are no error messages generated in the browser console after I tried to sync.

Please advise

Hello. I've just bought my first laptop today and still has a lot of things I need to set up. Now before downloading Firefox I made sure to download the US version of Firefox. And after it finished installing I double checked that the language is set on English and also add alternative language (Korean). It displays websites in correct language however, I noticed that the hamburger menu somehow shows 2 different language, 1 in English and the other in my local language (Indonesian), how do I fix this? It's so frustrating I don't want to use my local language, it's very awkward.

After recent Firefox update all of our profiles have disappeared. (And all our bookmarks and passwords, too!) At the about:profiles page, the only profile showing is the one I created to be able to launch Firefox. Under "Users" ..... "App Data", there are 3 profiles: the new one just created, another profile with same name and the Default profile. Can not access either of the old profiles. Both old profiles have last changed date the same as Firefox update. I hope there is a fix for this. This is almost as bad as the entire computer crashing.

My laptop just came back from the shop after a hard drive crash and Ive had to reinstall everything. I just reinstalled firefox, signed in and synced but its not got any of my bookmarks, saved passwords/logins, add ons or history. I tried to do the Import and Restore but there is nothing in there. I checked the profiles, there are two, profile:defualt-release and profile:default. Neither have any bookmarks, saved logins etc. I've been using firefox for years and have synced it before and it worked then. I chose firefox specifically so that I could just restore all my stuff in the event of a crash but now I can't find any of it. Is there any other way to get all my saved stuff back? Any advice would be greatly appreiated! thanks.

When i first start firefox idk what really causes it and can't really reproduce the issue and it's random on all pc's/os's i try by one thing in common is that it happens when i use my synced firefox account

So when it starts and i open a website it "sometimes" just closes immediately and have to reopen that website Also happens from a saved session. It's the wierdest issue i have ever seen as it's random and there isn't a way to really reproduce it to as far as i know.

I am sure it's some setting that is synced with my account as i didn't have the problem before i have had this issue for a few years now i think and it's really annoying and have looked if there was anything similar to this issue and couldn't find anything.

Hello everybody,

i have a problem with downloading in firefox. When i download a file with an extension unfamiliar to firefox, the download prompt opens, as it should be. What's missing is the option to select "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" before choosing an action. This means i can not "teach" firefox how to handle unfamiliar files which gets tedious when downloading them en masse. How do i get this option backin the prompt? Alternatively, is there another option to add file extensions and what to do with them to the Applications list in general settings?

Thank you very much!
